I would say that it does, but that the Council are in a difficult position 
serving a TPO on a tree they had previously agreed was not worthy of 
retention  -apparently simply as a means of development control,  should the 
matter ever come before an appeals inspector. Might be a good one to take an 
objection to committee!

I think I know that the TPO is top trump in this scenario but thought I'd 
seek other opinions.

I have an enquiry from someone has been given written permission from the 
Council to fell a tree on council land subject to conditions about it being 
wholly at their cost, replacement planting, contractor insurance cover etc.

A little later, on submission of a planning application for building 
extension, the Council (albeit a different department) served a TPO. The 
Order was also served on the tree officer who had written giving permission 
for the felling.

I guess the TPO overrules the original permission?
